Film producer and, now motivational speaker Adam Leipzig attended his 25th Yale college reunion. After speaking with old friends, he came to an astonishing conclusion – more than 80% of them were unhappy with their lives.
The majority of his former classmates were financially stable, highly educated and with life partners - yet they were dissatisfied. Leipzig then questioned the 20% who were leading happy and fulfilling lives and found that most of them had studied what interested them in college, not what they felt would propel them to the “right” career. He also discovered that they knew something about their very own life purpose.
